++ Xenograg. I've completely fogot about this approach.

Just to expand the idea a little bit, you (the OP) could create an e-mail address specific for this task (assuming the mail server resides on the same machine as the Perl log script*). For an example

Then you can, as Xenograg wisely suggested, make a script that checks this e-mail account and do the append stuff. This approach has at least two advantages from my original post:
  1. You don't have to make a "valid e-mail addresses" list, since this account will only receive e-mails from inside the company and therefore won't be "exposed" (if I've understood correctly).
  2. You can even treat information that was or not logged by looking if the e-mail message was already read or not.

* I've stated this for the sake of performance and to the application to be practical. If the mail server is in another machine I think this could get a little messy.

Best regards,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
